Taal volcano is the 2nd most active volcano in the Philippines. Located in province of Batangas, it is cited as the world’s largest island within a lake. However, last January 12, 2020, it recently caused a volcanic eruption. This generated an eruption plume one kilometre-high and was accompanied by volcanic tremor and earthquakes in the Volcano Island and the barangays of Agoncillo, Batangas. Because of the volcanic eruption, residents from at least three municipalities of the province of Batangas were evacuated. Volcanic ashfall was felt in the nearby provinces and cities. As a result, flights from Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila put on hold all departing and arriving flights due to ash fall from volcanic eruption.
No matter how long volcanoes sleep, they can be active at anytime. Last recorded volcanic eruption of the Taal volcano was in 1977. Here’s some tips on what to do during and after ash fall from volcanic eruption.
